Marketing professionals keep getting younger and their audience keeps getting older. Rob Morrison channels his grumpy old man and discusses the importance of mentoring programs. My first ever marketing boss was an amazing woman named Barb Noonan. It was the late 80s and Barb had already smashed through her fair share of the glass ceiling. She was managing a large marketing budget in a very large organisation. She was making multi-million dollar decision almost daily. She did everything by the book.
I, like most people, thought he would die - yet another victim of an alleged coward hit. Another story of a young life lost after a crazy decision made by someone else. I've covered these stories before. Josh was felled in the McDonald's car park in Redcliffe by a single high-kick to the head on May 12. He never saw the blow coming. His head hit the concrete ground. I was with the other journalists outside the Royal Brisbane Hospital waiting for the news that Josh hadn't made it.
The re-appointment of Ian Stewart as Queensland Police Commissioner this week hasn’t surprised many, not in policing circles anyway. He’s the incumbent, and eight months out from the Commonwealth Games, for the premier he’s the obvious choice. But there’s an aside. It’s well known, as is often the case with our leaders, that Mr Stewart has his critics. They come from within and outside the service. He knows it too. “You talk about cherry picking different views,” Mr Stewart said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
